        This production was created by Owen Kindig in 1994 for Lena Romanoff and her company, the Jewish Converts and Interfaith Network. It was shot on videotape and 16mm film in San Antonio, Philadelphia, and Columbus Ohio. Its purpose was to communicate the results of Lena's extensive research into the impact of dual-religion parenting on the children. Its tone is both celebratory of the benefits of Judaism in teaching children about God, and the difficult emotional pathways that interfaith couples face as they try to find their own personal and family identity. My special thanks to David and Lena Romanoff, my clients and the executive producers and visionaries behind this film. It features a number of Columbus residents including members of Tifereth Israel, Rabbi Harold Berman and Cantor Jack Chomsky, residents of the Wexner Heritage Village who shared their hearts with me, Florence Melton of blessed memory, and the faculty and students of Columbus Torah Academy of Columbus and Akiba Hebrew Academy (Now Jack M. Barrack) of Philadelphia. The shtetl photographs were by Roman Vishniac, from his book A Vanished World, and are reproduced by arrangement with the Publisher, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Inc. The theme music was written and performed by Harris Romanoff, one of several talented sons of Lena and David. My daughters Rachel and Lydia also appear in the film. In addition to directing, writing, shooting, and editing the film, Owen also helped market it, including the design of the logo, packaging and creation of teaching seminar books and magazine ads.

                  • God is the Teacher in Both Faith and Reason (Part 3) (TRtB #35)

                    Released: May 29, 2014 By: Daniel Whyte III Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, "Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil." Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from C. S. Lewis. He said, "If Christianity was something we were making up, of course we could make it easier. But it is not. We cannot compete, in simplicity, with people who are inventing religions. How could we? We are dealing with Fact. Of course anyone can be simple if he has no facts to bother about." Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "God Is the Teacher in Both Faith and Reason" (Part 3) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli: Aquinas's confidence is confirmed by experience and history. For nearly two millennia, orthodox Christians have found it true. Today thousands of thoughtful converts repeat the same threefold process of discovery that Justin Martyr wrote of in the second Century in his autobiographical "First Apology": 1. A man seeks the truth by the unaided effort of reason, and is disappointed. 2. It is offered him by faith, and he accepts. 3. And, having accepted, he finds that it satisfies his reason. There is an even earlier testimony to this pattern. The first Christian apologist, Paul, expresses it in 1 Corinthians 1:20-25: 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. If the divinely revealed gospel, "God's foolishness," is wiser than the best human philosophical wisdom, then human wisdom must be more foolish than the gospel. There are three ways to be foolish: (a) to misapprehend or misunderstand or fail to grasp; (b) to be ignorant, to fail to know or discover, and (c) to be illogical and fail to prove, to commit a fallacy. At least one of these follies, or mistakes, corresponding to the three "acts of the mind," must be present in every argument against the truth, and therefore also against the truth of the Christian faith. And since these three follies are follies of reason, right reason can refute them. The sword of reason is in itself undefeatable and can cut through all the objections to the faith. But any given human reasoner, like any given swordsman, can use it badly, that is, irrationally. The Fall weakened our arms that wield the sword, but the sword itself remains sharp.

                      U.S. blames Iran for Persian Gulf cyberattacks. According to The Associated Press, a former US government official says American authorities firmly believe that Iranian hackers, likely supported by the Tehran government, were responsible for recent cyberattacks against oil and gas companies in the Persian Gulf and that they appeared to be in retaliation for the latest round of US sanctions against the country. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, in a speech to business leaders in New York City, became the first US official to publicly acknowledge the computer-based assaults. He said they were probably the most destructive cyberattacks the private sector has seen to date. Russia says it will not renew arms agreement with U.S. According to Reuters, Russia will not renew a decades-old agreement with Washington on dismantling nuclear and chemical weapons when it expires next year. The death of the 1991 agreement is the latest in a series of hitches in relations between the United States and Russia and casts doubt on the future of the much-vaunted "reset" in relations between the Cold War-era foes. The project had resulted in the deactivation of more than 7,650 strategic warheads. More Israeli Jews express desire to control the Temple Mount and build a third temple. According to Haaretz, just last year, temple activists were firmly planted in the far-right messianic fringes of Orthodox Judaism and were shunned by most religious Jews. This has ceased to be the case, however, and the Temple Mount Faithful take pride in the growing list of rabbis who withdrew their ban on visiting the Temple Mount. For the first time, activists have created a political program calling for changing the legal status of the Temple Mount as well as allocating prayer times for Jews. The change is evident in the unprecedented proliferation of movements and pressure groups focusing on the Temple Mount and the rebuilding of the temple itself. The Bible says in Mark 13:26-27: "And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven."
